Expand your exports to the Netherlands and Belgium.

26 July 2021

Expand your exports to the Netherlands and Belgium with Ace Express Freight and our partners H. Essers and Seacon.

The Netherlands and Belgium have always been the main gateways into Europe for Irish companies, but in the aftermath of Brexit it has now become a critical export route and one of the most popular destinations for freight shipments out of Ireland.

Unfortunately, this increased customer demand has generated higher transport costs, and it can be difficult for local exporters to get a good deal on consignments from Ireland, decreasing their margins and reducing their ability to complete with established local companies. 

To address this urgent customer need, Ace Express Freight and our long-term partners H.Essers and Seacon Logistics are expanding our European Export services for Irish companies, adding extra capacity and increasing our scheduled sailings from Ireland to both the Netherlands and Belgium, providing flexible Groupage and Full Load options to cater for all customer requirements, at extremely competitive rates

You can now ship your freight quickly and cost effectively, with multiple sailings per week from Dublin, Cork, and Waterford direct to the Netherlands or Belgium, and onwards to anywhere in Europe via our extensive European Partner Network. 

This isn’t the only European route we've been developing. We have been working closely with our European partners to expand our direct routes and increase services between Ireland and all the major European countries and ports; and we now have direct weekly import and export services to Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, the Nordics, Iceland, Czech Republic, Poland and Eastern Europe!

H.Essers – It’s Transpossible.

H.Essers was founded by Henri Essers in 1928 and has since become one of the leading companies in Europe in the field of transport and logistics for such sectors as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, healthcare and high-quality goods. 

The company currently has 1,108,000 m² of warehouse space, a fleet of 1,475 lorries and 3,340 trailers, with over 6,600 employees across 77 branches in 19 countries in Western and Eastern Europe.

Seacon Logistics

Since Seacon was founded, in 1985, by Hai Berden, they have been building their organisation as a major Logistics Chain Director.

In 1986, the first multimodal inland terminal in Venlo was developed together with Hutchison Ports, and Seacon Logistics now has more than 700 employees, at various strategic locations throughout Europe. Yet the origin of the family business still continues to be the base of the organisation, and their greatest strength.
